"SNHU provided me with a family-friendly environment to achieve my goals."

After I graduated with my bachelor's degree, all I knew was that I needed health insurance and to make some money. I took the first job that offered me benefits: bank teller. Nine years later, I have worked my way up and truly love my job. Halfway into my career, I thought, “Hey, I’m pretty good at this. I should get a master’s to complement my real world experience.”

I always knew I wanted my master’s, but the timing wasn’t right. I started when my only child was less than one year old. What was I thinking?! I get an idea in my head, I get committed and go for it. I have to thank my husband for supporting me while I’m taking classes. I couldn’t do it without him. I’m reminded of this when he goes away for work! SNHU provided me with a family-friendly environment to achieve my goals. While I wasn’t tied to a classroom, I was held to a high standard of excellence that I could incorporate into my already busy life. I continue to plug away, class after class. I will achieve my goal!
